Ravelry Swap

I participated in a swap on Ravelry, and I had a lot of fun knitting things for my swap partner. It was a Lion Brand Organic Cotton Swap.

I knitted this neck warmer for her. It is knitted from Lion Brand Organic Cotton, on a #6 needle.The colorway is vanilla and I used 1 3/4 skeins. The top part is knitted in two kinds of rib stitch and them the bottom is finished with a crochet edging. I made the pattern up as I went along. 
 Then I knitted these gauntlets with a cable stitch and added crochet edging with gold buttons down the sides to give the effect of buttoned gloves. I used Lion Brand Organic Cotton in the color way of Bark. They were knitted on #3 needles. I made this pattern up as I went along also.  My beautiful daughter was kind enough to model them for me. 
I ordered these lovely sterling silver, rose quartz earrings from an etsy seller.
 These stitch markers were also from an etsy seller. I really like the colors.
 I knitted and filled these little sachet pillows. She told me her favorite colors were purple and green. She likes the colors in jewel tones.
I knitted this dish cloth from Lion Brand Organic Cotton, the colorway is Cypress.
 With the bits of leftover yarn, I decided to knit and crochet this washrag for her. As you can see I ran out of the Bark color just before I reached the end of the row. I hope she doesn't mind too much.
 This is a little cucumber candle I included, because she said she liked candles.
 This is the whole package. Included, was a skein of  Lion Brand Organic Cotton and a bar of Anise soap.
I really hope she likes her package!

As a matter of fact, I loved my package! It couldn't have been better if we had been friends who knew each other for years. Thanks again, Jan!
